CARSTAR and participating Southwestern Ontario locations, teamed up with local radio stations this holiday season to provide some 30 families an extra boost of holiday cheer through the annual ‘Days of Giving’ donation initiative.
Listeners nominated deserving families by sharing stories with local radio stations as to why their nominee could use some extra support this holiday season.
Participating CARSTAR locations then provided gift cards ranging from $300-$500 towards food, clothing and financial support for the deserving winners.
The locations in question included CARSTAR Cambridge, CARSTAR Elmira, CARSTAR Fergus, CARSTAR Kitchener King St., CARSTAR Kitchener Shirley Drive, CARSTAR Waterloo, CARSTAR London East, CARSTAR London West, CARSTAR Sarnia, CARSTAR St. Thomas and CARSTAR Strathroy.
“CARSTAR aims to give back to the communities we live and work in all year round and our annual Days of Giving donations are no different,” said Michael Macaluso, President, CARSTAR. “Participating CARSTAR locations drive this program and their generosity is truly unmatched as they continue this donation year after year.”
“After we donate the gift cards and get to talk to the recipients, we get so moved by their stories and are incredibly grateful that we have the opportunity to help these families out,” said Luci Minogue, Owner, CARSTAR London East and CARSTAR London West. “I have even stayed in touch with some of our winners from over the years and I just feel so lucky to have met these outstanding people.”
